1. Beautiful Birds book. It’s no secret that I am obsessed with birds, flamingos in particular (keep reading for my latest flamingo finds!) and this beautifully illustrated A-Z book is so stunning I’m not actually giving it to the girls just yet, as they will inevitably wreck it. So it’s on the picture shelf in the office. I get it down every so often and wish I could draw like that.
2. Natural Antibacterial Spray A day out and picnic essential from a British eco-friendly company. This Neal’s Yard Organic Defence Hand Spray smells delightful (not of chemicals, like the other antibacterial gels I have tried in the past) and is made with essential oils and witch hazel. I have it in my changing bag, and the girls love it when I spray it on their hands (which is something I would only do in emergencies with the normal gels, in case they for some reason lick their hands!).
It’s £6.50 for 50ml, which is more than the chemical sanitisers, but you get more in the spray, so I think it is good value for money, especially considering it’s certified organic, and all natural. I have a NYR Representative friend and she have this to me to try, but my opinions are honest and unbiased, as usual!
3. Flamingos. I managed to get not one, but two new flamingo items this month, yay! This duvet cover and pillowcase is from Dunelm Mills and was only £8, down from £10. I even planned ahead and got one for Thea, so if they ever have bunkbeds, they will match. Ava LOVES it. She’s also pinched Thea’s flamingo PJs from last month, as the thinks wearing them in her bed makes her camouflaged. I go along with that, obviously.
